There is no other way to put this other than Squaw had perfect conditions today *in the morning.  I woke up and saw the Fingers from my living room couch.  They had turned into spines, and I immediately texted my boss to tell him I’d be late to work.

I got my things together and walked over to the lift to find they had taken half the chairs off KT-22 in order to dig out two sections where the snow was so deep it was touching the chairs.

This took a long time to get ready on top of the rest of the prep work to open the terrain.  I lined up at 8am and the chair did not open until 11:30am.  Once it opened however the fingers race was on!
